>>Dear friends
>>My views are:
>>Sometimes one would do well in reading the words given by H. P. Blavatsky
>>about the reason for the formation of the Esoteric Section...
>>H. P. Blavatsky said to the members of the Esoteric Section:
>>"This degree of the Esoteric Section is probationary, and its general 
>purpose is to prepare and fit the student for the study of practical occultism 
>or Raj yoga. Therefore, in this degree, the student--save in exceptional 
>cases--will not be taught how to produce physical phenomena, nor will any 
>magical powers be allowed to develop in him; nor, if possessing such powers 
>naturally, will he be permitted to exercise them before he has thoroughly 
>mastered the knowledge of SELF, of the psycho-physiologica l processes 
>(taking place on the occult plane) in the human body generally, and until he has 
>in abeyance all his lower passions and his PERSONAL SELF.
>>The real Head of the Esoteric Section is a Master, of whom H. P. 
>Blavatsky is the mouthpiece for this Section. He is one of those Adepts referred to 
>in theosophical literature, and concerned in the formation of the 
>Theosophical Society. "
>>. . . . . . .
>>"The Theosophical Society has just entered upon the fourteenth year of 
>its existence; and if it has accomplished great, one may almost say 
>stupendous, results on the exoteric and utilitarian plane, it has proved a dead 
>failure on all those points which rank foremost among the objects of its 
>original establishment. Thus, as a "Universal Brotherhood, " or even as a 
>fraternity, one among many, it has descended to the level of all those Societies 
>whose pretensions are great, but whose names are simply masks,--nay, even 
>SHAMS. Nor can the excuse be pleaded that it was led into such an undignified 
>course owing to its having been
>>impeded in its natural development, and almost extinguished, by reason of 
>the conspiracies of its enemies openly begun in 1884. Because even before 
>that date there never was that solidarity in the ranks of our Society which 
>would not only enable it to resist all external attacks, but also make it 
>possible for greater, wider, and more tangible help to be given to all its 
>members by those who are always ready to give help when we are fit to 
>receive it. When trouble arose, too many were quick to doubt and despair, and few 
>indeed were they who had worked for the Cause and not for themselves. The 
>attacks of the enemy have given the Society some discretion in the conduct 
>of its external progress, but its real internal condition has not improved, 
>and the members, in their efforts towards spiritual culture, still require 
>that help which solidarity in the ranks can alone give them the right to 
>ask. The Masters can give but little assistance to a Body not
>thoroughly united in purpose and feeling, and which breaks its first

>or colour; nor to a Society, many members of which pass their lives in 
>judging, condemning, and often reviling other members in a most untheosophical, 
>not to say disgraceful, manner."
>>. . . . . . .
>>"For this reason it is now contemplated to gather the "elect" of the T.S. 
>and to call them to action. It is only by a select group of brave souls, a 
>handful of determined men and women hungry for genuine spiritual 
>development and the acquirement of soul-wisdom, that the Theosophical Society at 
>large can be brought back to its original lines. It is through an Esoteric 
>Section alone--i.e., a group in which all the members, even if unacquainted 
>with one another, work for each other, and by working for all work for 
>themselves-- that the great Exoteric Society may be redeemed and made to realize 
>that in union and harmony alone lie its strength and power. The object of 
>this Section, then, is to help the future growth of the Theosophical Society 
>as a whole in the true direction, by promoting brotherly union at least 
>among the few.
>>All know that this end was in view when the Society was established, and 
>even in its mere unpledged ranks there was a possibility for development

>place them at the service of their fellow-men, the whole theosophical 
>community may yet be steered into action, and led to follow the example set before 
>>The Esoteric Section is thus "set apart" for the salvation of the whole
